Using jumper cables :
1. Connect one red clamp to the positive terminal (+) of running car's battery and the other end red clamp to the positive terminal (+) of the dead car's battery .
2. Connect one black clamp to the negative terminal (-) of running car's battery and the other end black clamp to the negative terminal (-) of the dead car's battery.
Basically... (+) to (+)...and... (-) to (-)
3. Crank up the car needing the jump.
4. Once car is jumped and running...remove clamps in reverse order.
Using battery pack: Connect in the same fashion as above.
try an old fashioned battery boost from another car or truck. leave the other car running while boosting your. run booster cable from the booster car to your truck make sure to run them the same way on each battery. positive on booster to positive side battery on the truck. run the negative from booster car to negative on your truck. allow the car to run for about 10minutes before you attempt to start your truck. this allows your battery to build up enough charge for the start up of your truck. after your truck starts take the cables off right away. let your truck run for at least 15minutes to allow time for your battery to build up before you attempt to drive it.that way if it should die,you'll have enough charge on your battery for a restart. thank you for choosing fixya.com hope this helps.
Try boosting the van.If that works then you either need to clean the cables and battery posts or you need a battery.If boosting it does not work then you may need a starter or the cables to it have came loose,also the engine ground could be the culprit,if this is true then put your booster cables in this configuration;positive to positive and negative from the boosting cars negative post to your engine's block,find a good clean grounding point on the block and hook the clamp there.If the van starts then clean the factory ground point,replace the cable end,or replace the cable.Let me know if none of this info helps and i will give you more things to try.
You could try to 'jump-start' with a booster cable.
Connect one end of the negative cable of the booster-battery to its negative terminal, and connect the other negative end of the booster-battery to the engine block (ground).
If booster battery is not maintenance free, you must take off their top caps.
Connect each ends of the positive booster-cable to the positive ends of each battery.
Start the car with good battery first, then start the Audi.
If the Audi fails to start after about 20-minutes, it means that its battery needs to be removed and charged with battery-charger, or a new one put in its place.
If the Audi has a standard transmission, you could have helpers push it, and apply the 2nd gear once it starts rolling.
The engine should fire up.
If it fails to fire up, have the dead battery replaced or re-charged.
Check battery connections first for looseness, corrosion, etc;... If the starter clicks it is a power issue not the starter. The battery may need to be fully charged or replaced take it to a local patrs store and have them check it.
